This ensures that each client receives a workout regimen tailored specifically to their needs, guaranteeing maximum effectiveness and safety.

NASM Certified Fitness Nutrition Specialist

Optimal nutrition plays a pivotal role in achieving your fitness goals, and it's often the missing puzzle piece on your fitness journey. James, armed with his NASM Certified Fitness Nutrition Specialist (FNS) certification, is here to bridge this gap effectively. His expertise stems from comprehensive training in nutritional science, encompassing macronutrients, micronutrients, and personalized dietary plans. With James as your guide, you'll navigate the labyrinth of healthy eating with clarity, ensuring your dietary choices harmonize seamlessly with your fitness aspirations. This proves particularly advantageous within the Warrior Parent Project's 90-day program, where James's flexible nutritional approach empowers you to savor your favorite foods while making significant strides in weight loss and muscle toning.

NASM Certified MMA Conditioning Coach

The inclusion of this certification may pique the interest of those not particularly invested in Mixed Martial Arts, but its impact extends far beyond initial impressions. A certified MMA Conditioning Coach serves as more than just a trainer for fighters stepping into the ring; they excel in crafting exhilarating and diverse workout routines that enhance endurance, bolster strength, and sharpen agility. Drawing from the principles of MMA conditioning, these techniques inject a sense of excitement and dynamism into traditional training, guaranteeing that your workouts are far from dull. This innovative approach seamlessly aligns with the Warrior Parent Project, where the 45 Minute MetTone MATRIX workout is meticulously designed to optimize fat burning and sculpt your muscles.

NASM Certified Speed, Agility, and Quickness Specialist

Finally, the SAQ (Speed, Agility, and Quickness) Specialist certification further enriches James's already formidable skill repertoire. This specialized training places a strong emphasis on honing precise movement mechanics, enabling clients to make substantial strides in their athletic prowess. Whether it involves chasing after an energetic toddler or participating in a weekend soccer match, these proficiencies prove indispensable in one's daily routine. Moreover, they infuse an extra dimension of complexity into the training modules of the program, ensuring that workouts remain varied and captivating.

Where do I start? Well……you see it all started with this chick at work……I was going through an exceptionally difficult time in my life with losing my house in a wildfire here in Northern Cali and my wife bailed outa couple days later…you could say it was tough times in James Ville……until I met Allie.

You see Allie had this way about her…smooth, confident, beautiful,single mom, hard worker….etc etc…..well we were both going through a divorce and she was moving into a supervisor roll at work…. guess who’s supervisor she was going to be ;) so one thing led to another, I asked her to come “shadow me” so I could make sure we were on the same page for my role in the company at the time…. she looked at me with those honey brown “starry” eyes and she kept checking out my Venus Williams (what we call my booty) and I knew…. you ain’t gonna be my boss lol. She gave me her number at the end of our time together when we first met and i reached out….wouldn’t you know it…. Fuckin ghosted lol….I was like, ight, coo all good. Home girl is going through a lot and probably not in the place… turned out she looked like a “trashbag” as she says (shes beautifulregardless, she be trippin) and was several glasses of wine deep whilst moving….not the right time you might think….

Sooooo time past, and one night, your boy was higher than giraffe pussy on an edible….(single and kid less at the time just fyi for the judgy judgers out there) any whoooo. Ya boy was on cloud nine when, “Tweet Tweet”, text tone going off…… well look who it is…… Alexandraboss lady Benson in the dms :) I was high af and tripping on the message she sent (there was a lot of weirdness happening at work, people getting in trouble for sexual harassment getting fired left and right etc. etc.) she had sent me her version of the Chris Brown apology to Rihanna and it had legal jargon in there…. since your boy was high as a kite I immediately thought I was in trouble (super irrational) and so I did what any basic bitch would do and called herass…

We laughed honey moon chatted for several hours….and well that was the start to making a beautiful family after spending time together we knew this was more than a fit so she had me meet her 2 beautiful munchkins Madeline and Peyton…. theywere 5 and 8 when I met them and they are awesome….

A few short monthslater…..we got pregnant with our youngest Ember (fire cracker that she be) we moved to a house on a hill up in the mountains and started our little family. Madeline loves working out, training BJJ, listening to music and playing softball. Peach loves cuddling, chillin’, eating snacks, watching movies and eating sushi…. boojie ass babies. And Ember…well Ember is a psychopath….nah just kidding she’s rad. She’s the most intense of the children indeed. She loves doing pretty much anything with us and lets us know if she’s hungry or tired lol. Well, that’s the intro to the fam…thanks for spending  8 minutes of your time reading this…. lol, have a great day fam. 

Jenna's Journey Of Rejuvination


Jenna felt the weight of motherhood pressing down on her shoulders as she gazed at the reflection in the full-length mirror. The image staring back at her didn't quite match the vibrant woman she used to be. Two beautiful children, Emma and Ethan, had brought immeasurable joy into her life, but they had also left their mark on her physique.

Turning 34 had been a wake-up call for Jenna. She realized that she needed to prioritize her health, not just for herself but for her family too. With a determined glint in her eye, Jenna set a goal: she would reclaim her vitality and fitness by April 30th.

Her quest for transformation led her to James Biccum, a well known, well respected fitness coach from Gym Truck Chico. His reputation preceded him, with success stories well known throughout the community. Jenna knew that James was her best shot at achieving her goals.

After a brief conversation, they scheduled their first meeting, and Jenna's journey toward rejuvenation officially began.

At their initial session, James assessed Jenna's current fitness level and listened attentively to her goals and desires. His calm demeanor and reassuring words put Jenna at ease, filling her with newfound determination. Together, they crafted a tailored fitness plan designed to melt away excess pounds and sculpt lean muscle.

The weeks flew by in a whirlwind of sweat and determination. Jenna's daily routine transformed as she prioritized her workouts and embraced a healthier diet. Early morning workouts at home became her “me time”, a sacred space where she could focus solely on her well-being.

As Jenna began her fitness journey, her children were close by, always supervised as their mom would sometimes include them in her workout. Emma and Ethan thoroughly enjoyed their new routine, and looked forward to it as much as their mum.

With James's expert guidance, Jenna conquered every obstacle that stood in her way. She pushed herself beyond her limits, refusing to let self-doubt derail her progress. Each drop of sweat shed was a testament to her resilience, a tangible reminder of the woman she was becoming.

April 30th loomed on the horizon, a date etched in Jenna's mind as the ultimate test of her dedication. As the days dwindled, a sense of anticipation hung in the air, Jenna was excited.

When her day arrived, Jenna stood before the mirror once more, her heart pounding with anticipation. With bated breath, she assessed her reflection, hardly daring to believe the transformation that had taken place.

Gone were the traces of self-doubt and insecurity, replaced by an aura of strength and confidence. Jenna's body radiated vitality, a testament to the countless hours of sweat and sacrifice she had poured into her journey.

As she stepped onto the scale, Jenna's heart skipped a beat, her breath catching in her throat. The numbers flashed before her eyes, and a smile spread across her face. She not only surpassed her weight loss goal but she lost 12 extra pounds. Pounds she thought she'd never lose.

But the true measure of Jenna's success lay not in numbers on a scale, but in the newfound sense of empowerment that pulsed through her veins bc of the fitness journey she chose to take. She had reclaimed control of her health and her life, emerging from the cocoon of transformation stronger and more resilient than ever before.

As she embraced her children in a triumphant hug, Jenna knew that her journey was far from over. With James by her side, she would continue to chase new heights, emboldened by the knowledge that anything was possible with faith, determination, and a little sweat equity.
